There wasn't much overlap between each our judges top three previews – a wonderful reminder of how everyone has different tastes and how generative art allows us to celebrate that. A clear winner did emerge, with Pixel Pete and Rodo both opting for a striking pseudo-gradient pinwheel effect.
We've decided to award free mints to three runners up, those who were first choice for our three remaining judges. Bruce opted for a spaced monochrome mint showing off the Platonic forms and textured pen. Kylo went with a rosy packed pentagon with Escher-esque dimensions. Tyler selected a chunky, structured piece with hints of contrast colour. Congratulations to all our winners, and a final thank you to our judges and everyone who took part!
